Ancient Sparta

Ancient Sparta

Want to see some of Greece’s greatest history? There are famous cities and then there’s Sparta – one of Ancient Greece’s mighty military centres. If you’ve seen Gerard Butler lead the warrior Spar-tans into battle in 300, then prepare for it to all come to life as you wander around the crumbling temples, centuries-old theatres and well-preserved ruins here. Follow an expert guide or simply explore for yourself.
